Hi experts!  

Here is the code I'm using for my calculated field:

Percentage: ([quantity]*[makeup])/100

The result currently shows two decimal points.  I would like this field to round to the nearest whole number, no decimals.  Please help!

Thank you.

Well, you could do it in the formatting of the field, just set the # of decimals to 0

Or you could use the Round() function:

Percentage: Round([quantity]*[makeup]/100)

You are welcome.

I actually like FormatNumber() better, because IF ... you need two dec pts, you can't get that with Round() - in some cases:

?Round(55/22,2)
 2.5

?FormatNumber(55/22,2)
2.50
